      I'd be pissed. This to me is a much bigger offense than serving illegally, especially when we are talking about a guy whose serves are borderline at most and clearly isn't gaining any clear...

      Go to 1:11 and play the video in 0.5x or 0.25x speed. Let me know at which point both his free hand and the ball are stationary, as dictated by the rulebook.

      I may be, but I have watched some of the beginning and some of the end of this video, and on many of the occasions I saw, at all times during your pre-service motion, either the ball or your serving...

      It is not severe but neither is the opponent's "shielding" of the ball, based on the few points I watched. His serve doesn't seem obstructed to me at all.

      You can clearly see that the transition...

      2.6.1 - Service shall start with the ball resting freely on the open palm of the server's stationary free hand.

      In your first few serves, every single time you roll the ball around on your paddle,...

      And I suppose you believe what you're told as long as it comes from YouTube conspiracy theorists - let us know who the top psychos are and the reason for the experiment though!

      I thought you were batsh*t crazy when you said Ma Long had to prove his legacy and GOAT title at the Chinese Championships, but this takes the cake.

      This post sums up well what I am getting at. This bit you wrote "if blocking is merely sticking the racket out and hoping" is what I think of when I hear the term passive block, and goes back to my...
    11. "Offensive as I can, brush looping all the way"...

      "Offensive as I can, brush looping all the way" kind of sounds like something a low level player would say, so skill level is a good starting point to determine equipment choice. Listing an actual...

      So it is still a block but you are trying to slow the ball down, this requires good feeling, and it is still a very active motion to execute that shot correctly and nothing about it should be...

      If you are spinning forwards or upwards that is not a block. So basically what you are saying is a passive block is when you are out of place and are trying to bail yourself out?

      I am not sure if this had anything to do with it, but I noticed a tendency for some video compilers to put their own logo on video content which they do not or have the rights to. In some cases, they...

      You are right, that flashing TTBL logo banner coming up every 10 seconds is god awful.

      The new ball which carries less spin disincentives waiting on the ball and attempting to take a big swing to load it up to spin. As Fabian mentioned, the game has moved more towards quick countering...

      G1 may have a similar feeling to T05 but I found it to be lacking in top end speed and spin significantly compared to T05, so this is worth mentioning.

      I am not a fan of the term "passive...

      Pretty sure nobody, and certainly nobody who's opinion should be taken seriously, ever said that. Big time straw man argument.

      I was thinking this is a smart strategy by andro. Increase the perception that R53 is for advanced players or pros only. Once it has that mystique, like certain sheets of H3 do, the plebs will want...

      V15 Extra which frequently gets touted as a T05 alternative (it's not...) is made in Germany. I wonder why the V07 is made in Japan.

      But as Brs said, buy the Tenergy, or save your couple of bucks...
